The First Quarry

Collins, Max Allan
Quarry's first job, eliminating a college professor.

Quote:

The pie was in fact excellent, a thin crust with a lot of tomato sauce and just the right amount of mozzarella and seemed to me just about the best pizza ever, although you should factor in that I'd been living on Slim Jims, beef jerky and Hostess cupcakes.

"Where is he?"

"Playing with a rock'n'roll band, of all things."

"...A nice kid, messed up in a business like that."

Quote:

"Really, Darlene, you should make up your mind. You can't be into both the B-52s and Willie Nelson. It just doesn't make sense."

Who is the disguntled-looking blond in the, uh, bikini?, on the cover smoking a cigar after lightening it with paper money?? I'm guessing it is Sherry.
